Question about Canon (6981A002AA) for imagerunner 2200, 2800, 3300 Print Server

How do I override the paper size on a Canon imagerunner 2200?

I have been all through the menu and I cannot figure out how to do this. I am trying to print 9 x 12 envelopes through the bypass and the machine will not recognize it. I have tried selecting all sizes of paper to no avail.

I have an image runner 2800 and I had the same problem. It drove me crazy I searched the entire menu. I finally figured it out. Pull out the paper tray which you want to change. There is a small dial on the right side with paper sizes on it. Select the right on and put the tray back. Your paper size should now have changed on the menu. You are welcome :-)

Spinal responded so rudely, I felt bad for the person asking the question. "IF you walked up to the copier and want to print envelopes?" I don't think the question would be asked if that were not the case. Anyway, I had the exact same question. Tried printing 9 x 12 envelopes and the machine would not recognize the envelope in any of the selections on the monitor. That is how I happened across this site, also looking for help. Didn't find what I wsa looking for, so I tried the free size, and guess what? That worked! The free size allowed me to successfully print my 9 X 12 envelopes with the by-pass, no problem. If anyone could respond to which code means whatuse on th emonitor for envelopes, that would be helpful. Thanks!

Hello bugsy329
Without the benefit of a genuine conversation between us I will try to help you using the information you have given. I will answer your question with the assumption that you have " walked up" to the copier and wish to copy onto these envelopes. Let's assume the copier is sitting there in a "READY" condition and there is nothing in the bypass tray. Flip the bypass tray down and insert the envelopes. Set the side guides to **** against the envelopes regardless of the orientation you have placed them. (For some reason I just FEEL that the 9 inch edge should be the lead/ fed edge). Once you have placed the envelopes in the bypass tray the copier should recognize this fact and the display will change giving you the opportunity to communicate to the copier what you are gettng to "shove " into it. LOL. The screen should display a menu that allows you to further define the type of "wood" you are about to cram into it. The standard sizes appear, but you should also see options to the right of the standard sizes. You have 2 options." Free Size" and "Envelopes". The envelope setting is good in the fact that it uses predetermined standard envelope sizes. Free size, well....... to be for non standard sizes of paper and gives you the ability (responsibility) to customize a huge number of settings as the copier will either feed the sheet, and calculate what IT thinks is best or you can REALLY customize so many settings. If you select envelope you will be given a menu of sizes. I have to admit that I have no clue to what a standard size envelope is . For example "MONARCH" ? And so unfortunatly I dont recall the envelpoe setting giving you an option for the dimension/sizes of the paper you are putting thru. I am sorry I don't have a copier in front of me at the moment as I am at home and my dachsund is trying to (how do I say this) "propose " to my cat. But i believe I have given you the info you need to get started. Hope this helps...........spinal.......

Check your paper size/orientation dial on the paper tray you are using. I believe this machine uses this dial to tell the machine what paper size and orientation is loaded. Make sure the dial matches the size and direction.

Are you tring to print on a regular #10 or #6 size envelopes? And are you tring to more then just 1 to 10 or more? Did you try to select the manual by-pass tray in word? You might get lucky and get a few correctly. There is a optional paper tray made for envelopes only that would replace one of your trays in the copeir. You may have to get it from a copier supplier. It may have to be ordered or try to find a used one on the web. That would be the best way to print envelopes in any amount. Also you may need to replace you paper pick-up & paper feed & paper sepperation rollers more often with that tray..
